- "You can't escape God's Eye!"
- ―Mose Jakande
Mose Jakande was born in 1972 in Nigeria and he is of Nigerian and French citizenship. A mercenary and owner of an unnamed private military company, Jakande made a name for himself as a terrorist for hire in the criminal world.
At some point, Jakande was hired by Cipher to abduct a young computer hacker by the name of Ramsey, who designed a specialized hacking device known as the "God's Eye". Because the device allowed its user to access to any and all technology, Jakande intended to use the device for his own purposes. However, because Ramsey had sent the device elsewhere, they were unable to obtain the device. His right hand man, Louis Kiet, was in charge of leading a heavily-armed convoy guarding Ramsey through the Caucasus Mountains near Azerbaijan to him.
Dominic and his crew pursue and attack Jakande's convoy, and rescue Ramsey. When Dominic and Ramsey are separated from the others, Jakande and the rest of his men pursue Dominic and Ramsey. When they have them cornered at the edge of a cliff, Jakande steps out of his car and tries to barter for the release Ramsey in exchange for Dominic's survival. Dominic, however, refuses and drives his Dodge Charger over the cliff-side. Surprised, Jakande watches the car tumble down the cliff.
Prior to arriving in Abu Dhabi, Jakande enters into an alliance with Deckard. In Abu Dhabi, Jakande ambushes Dominic, Brian, Mr. Nobody and his men, providing reinforcements for Shaw. When Nobody's right hand man, Sheppard is killed, Dominic and Brian are forced to leave the God's Eye behind to escape certain death with Mr. Nobody. With the God's Eye in his grasp, Jakande follows Shaw to Los Angeles to kill Ramsey. Jakande pursues Ramsey in a stealth helicopter using the God's Eye.
When he realizes that Ramsey is trying to hack her device, he sends a drone to destroy the radio tower she was using to hijack the device. He attempts several times to kill Ramsey, who is being passed off from Brian O'Conner to Roman Pearce and Tej Parker until she finally paired with Letty Ortiz. Letty and Ramsey are almost killed by the drone when an recovered Luke Hobbs crashes the drone using an ambulance.
Before he loses complete control of the the God's Eye, Jakande spots Dominic and Shaw fighting on the roof of a parking garage. Deciding that Shaw is no longer useful to him, he "ends" their alliance by firing a missile at the garage. The damage inflicted on the garage nearly killed Shaw, but he survived. When Ramsey successfully hacks the God's Eye, he loses control of the device. Enraged, Jakande opens fire on Letty's car, where Ramsey still is.
While Hobbs retaliates with the mini gun the drone was armed with, he is unable to bring Jakande's helicopter down. Jakande is finally killed when Dominic hooks Shaw's bag of hand grenades at the bottom of his helicopter and Hobbs fires on the bag with his signature Desert Eagle. The resulting explosion destroys the helicopter and kills Jakande.
